A video in which a family held a party on the Noi Bai-Lao Cai Highway on February 6 has stirred public outrage.
A man live streamed the party on his Facebook account. The family stopped their car in the emergency lane and then enjoyed a meal there.
The party was held on Noi Bai-Lao Cai Expressway
The clip drew hundreds of comments, with many saying this was too risky not only for themselves but also for other people.
A representative of the Ministry of Public Security’s Traffic Police Department said that the police were identifying the people who would be strictly fined.
Meanwhile, the man who posted the clip apologised saying it was just something lighthearted and he hadn’t thought through the consequences.
Owners parking cars on the highway face fines of VND5-6 million (USD217.39-260.86).
